It is amazing blade.it has every thing speed,control,spin ...I use it with bluefire jp01 on FH & coppa x1 turbo on BH.good combo,especially bf is awesome but i will check tenergy 05fx on both sides.

Despite being a little hard, and having high speed, It also has some decent control, because of it's outer hinoki layers. Average dwell time, medium throw angle, It is good for hitting, placing the ball with velocity. Pair It with good spinny rubbers, train your movements, and you'll have a great racket.

This blade is fast and made for blocking. Omega tour V on forehand and Fastarc G1 on the BH makes a splendid combination. Shorter time to react but only need to adjust on the trajectory of blade angle and all is a piece of cake. Hard and stiffer than gergerly carbon.. A formidable and must try blade.

This is my third blade. The specified weight was 88g. I asked for 86g but Butterfly sent me 90g. The angular FL grip was originally larger than my liking, but I sand it to a very comfortable size. This is my favorite grip of all. It took a while to get used to the speed especially with fast rubber like Friendship Aurora/the combo was too soft and springy especially due to the blade's very soft top layer+the softness of Aurora. You can easily mark the blade's surface with your finger nail. Then I decided to switch it to Hurrican III FH & Yasaka Mark V on BH. This is a very good combination. With the grippy H3 rubber, the blade is somewhat loopable and the Mark V on the back hand is good. I like to hit hard and this blade has very good control when you hit hard; it's rock solid, fast, & also very consistent. You need to face down the blade more due to it's very fast speed. The shots are fast and deep. The blade is pretty stiff when you smash the ball, it hardly flexes, but on the other hand you have a very soft surface and you get a pretty nice, soft feel without much vibration when hitting the ball; very unlike the ratings here. Very good combination of stiff structure + soft contact feel. I prefer to use harder & grippy rubbers on this blade for FH & med on BH. Update 6/1/15: I took the Vega Pro 2.0 from Stratus Powerwood and put on this blade FH and boy what a difference did that make. Vega Pro used to be kind of slow & high throw on Powerwood but is now a looping monster and lethal weapon with Primorac Carbon! Loops are extremely fast, low & curvy. Vega Pro is a hard rubber and felt a bit too hard on the limba surface of the Powerwood but seems pretty ideal & rock solid on P/C. When I whip the balls with top/side spin my opponents had a hard time returning my bullet fast looping shots. It is very fun & it kicks butts. With the right rubber & my improved technique the Primorac is now truly a formidable weapon for me.
